Hawks Nest Chronicles: Good News from Osceola, Iowa by Jonathn Heaslet
“Well, Reverend—I mean, Pastor Bob,” said Herb Weiss, setting down his coffee mug, “you’ve got to understand that we see the world a little differently here in Osceola.”
So begins the ministry of young Rev. Robert Daugherty-Milligan, fresh from seminary in Kansas City and filled with a few too many citified ideas.
Come on in to the Hawks Nest Diner “on the Square.” Let Martha Zimmerman serve you some coffee and homemade pie. Join in the lively conversation with Pastor Bob, Herb and his wife Emma, and other good-hearted people who call this small Midwestern town home. You’ll shake your head. You’ll laugh. And, once you get to know them, they’re bound to become your friends. Described by one reader as chocolates on a bedtime pillow, these short stories with good news at the center are a perfect way to end the day—or to savor with a muffin on a quiet afternoon. Unwrap each one to find a scripture lesson, a life lesson, or maybe an episode of the ridiculous. They’ll make you smile, lead you to reflect, and maybe cause a tear or two. Welcome.
